IMMIGRATION

There are two categories of work permit. A Temporary Employment Permit which is valid for 6 months only and a 2-year employment permit.

Please note that the applicant is NOT allowed to be present in Zambia when the work permit is being applied for and processed.

As of July 2016 – All Engineers are required to register with the Zambian Engineering Council and this process takes 1-3 months. It is recommended that the applicant enter Zambia on a 6-month Work Visa and apply for registration with the engineering council. When the registration process is complete, the applicant must leave the country to apply for his Long-Term Work Permit. Under no circumstance may anyone work on a business visa in Zambia. Once the Work visa is approved, we will apply for an entry visa to collect the work visa in Zambia
